Victor Erice's "The Spirit of the Beehive" (1973) is a haunting poetic film about Ana (Ana Torrent) a little girl who lives in a Spanish village in 1940.  This is a slow moving poetic film nothing much happens/  Fenrnado ( Fernado Fernan Gomez) is a bee keeper. Ana her sister Isabel attend school and play games.   A traveling movie projectionist screens James Whale Frankenstein and the monster haunts Ana's imagination. Beautifully crafted the movie captures the arid Castillian landscape and the slow pace of another time.  We see the action through the child's big brown eyes.   The film is available in fine two disc DVD from the Criterion collection.
